CLASSES AT MILK BAR

Milk Bar classes focus on the techniques that make our baked treats so uniquely delicious.

In our cake classes we’ll show you all the steps for assembling our most popular layer cake flavor combinations (an irresistible balance of cake, spread, frosting, crumbs, and crunch!), and how we transform our cake scraps and turn them into bite sized cake truffles! Or join us in making our signature item, crack pie®, from start to finish with a bonus lesson on turning cake scraps into truffles while your pie is in the oven!

At the end of class all participants take home everything they make, plus recipes and other bonus info! All ages and all levels of expertise welcome.

Classes are offered in our Logan Circle, DC Flagship and Los Angeles flagship locations as well as our Brooklyn HQ
